Instructions: How To Collect An Asbestos Sample

  1. Use a small “zip-lock” bag to contain the sample. The bag should be clean and dry.
  2. Before taking the sample, wet the material to be sampled with a fine mist of water containing a few drops of detergent (this will minimize the release of asbestos fibres).
  3. Using a clean knife, cut out a small piece of material about 2 square inches or approximately 2 tablespoons worth and put in it the zip-lock bag. Be sure to penetrate any paint or protective coating and make sure you sample all layers of the material.
  4. Tightly close the sample bag and wipe the exterior with a damp paper towel to remove any material which may have adhered to the bag during sampling.
  5. For pipe/boiler/duct insulation, patch the location from which the sample was taken by carefully applying a generous amount of adhesive aluminum foil tape.
  6. Mist with water and carefully fold up the plastic sheet. Clean the work area using a damp paper towel or disposable cloth, not a vacuum cleaner, and seal the asbestos waste, gloves, mask and cloth in a plastic bag. Check with your local municipality on how to dispose of asbestos-containing waste. Wash clothing separately and shower after completing the work.
  7. Label the sample bags identifying the specific location of the sample in the room or structure, and who took the sample.
  9. Enclose all samples in a large zip-lock bag and mail it into Enviro Tek (ADDRESS BELOW).
